    I have used shiseido products when I was living in Korea, which is known as high humid region and it worked great there. Recently, I have moved to Alberta, where climate seems is super dry. I wanna purchase shiseido again but not sure will be it working enough in dry climate…

    I’ve never visit the dermatologist to difference my skin type. But I think I have oily skin n also have some acne that cause by inflammation or allergie. More over I have dark skin. As a teenager, I really want my skin to look brighter. Is sheisheido suit to my oily skin?

  3. Kristy

    Hello! Just discovered this skin care line. I would love some advice! I am 34, I have oily skin that still has hormonal breakouts from time to time. Really looking for a skin care line that won’t make me break out but still makes my skin heathy and glow. I don’t want to strip my skin of the oils as that just makes me produce more!

    Thanks so much in advance

    I am very happy with the shisheido products especially their serum( in the red bottle) and the latest brightening range. I had dark pigmentation which has definitely abated.

    Hi, my skin are oily. Im using white lucent and for my make up foundation and bb cream iam using bobbi.. I this few weeks my skin so oily And got irritated i dont know whether because of shiseido or bobbi.. Please advice..

  6. Emma

    The Shiseido bb creams are lovely! I use the light one as I am fair, it is only a light coverage but it makes your skin look even and blocks out redness and gives you a radiant look. I like to wear it with some Shiseido powdery foundation to set it and it gives me a natural look

    I have been using shiseido since I was a teenager. Their products are amazing. I am now in my early 40’s and I have received so many compliments on my skin it amazes me everytime. I love their products and won’t try anything else. Their products are expensive but worth every penny…

    Hi Shiseido lovers,

    Need some help. I’m a male 45 yrs of age and not really in to all this, however now that I’m pushing in to my 50’s and with the polluted environment , junk food and working outdoors I think the time ( prob should of been years ago) I want to start taking care of my skin.
    I’ve consulted a few stores in my area but each sales rep defends the company that pays them..fair enough! After extensive reaserch on the internet I kind of like Shiseido and want to give them a trial. I do not mind spending my hard earned money on an entire line as long as I see results.
    Someone out there, and I know there are many of you, please assist me and recommend some of their products. My face is oily in the so called t-zone and kind of dehydrated under the eye area.
    A sales rep asked me how my skin feels at the end of the day, do not know if this plays a major role, but it feels oily. I need from a) cleanser, toner, serum, eye cream, day & night cream and whatever else you want to add on feel free.

      Hi! I used to work for Shiseido and it truly changed my skin. I continue to use their products and it’s the only line that won’t irritate my sensitive/ acne prone skin. For recommendations for you, I would recommend one of their pureness cleansers since you get oily in your t zone as well as the pureness softener. For an eye cream, bio performance lift dynamic is an amazing choice for dark circles, puffiness, dryness, and wrinkles. It has new technology with super hyaluronic acid which provides 24 hour hydration as well as peptides and caffeine. I use this everyday and it’s truly amazing. Using the pureness moisturizer during the day would help excess oil and preventing shine. For night time because your skin is renewing new skin cells and needs more hydration then, I would recommend the bio performance glow revival cream. It’s great for fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, any skin roughness, and evening out skin tone. It’s not too heavy or greasy and will help with the aging process as well as your overall skin health. I believe you would love this skincare regimen. It is always okay to mix different lines together. I use pureness, bio performance, and white lucent products.

      Hi Nic,
      I`m not a sales rep. My husband has the same oily t-zone and he`s 51.
      I offered him Bio-Performance- The Power to Correct Set for $114.00. He is not a skincare kind of guy but he`s noticed the difference. And I do too. That`s how I would start, before buying a bunch of products that may not work for you. Ps: Shiseido has always been ahead of their times.

      Hi Nic,

      I have the same problem as yours. I am searching for review on Shiseido skin care and found yours here. I’m still searching. ..


  10. Paula

    I have been using Shiseido for over 30 years. I am 65 years old and people still comment how beautiful my skin is. I have tried other products less expensive and more expensive but the change only lasts a few weeks at best. There is nothing better than Shiseido. I also use their foundation, eye make-up and lipsticks. I am caucasian.

  11. Stylistryu

    Shiseido is number one! They have many lines and formulations suitable for all skin types every line has its specific target. I prefer future solution, bio performance and benifiance. My skin is combination and they tend to be a bit heavy for me but it in the end my skin looks as it did 10 years ago well almost… I’ve been using Shiseido since I was 19. It is expensive but you pay for what you get and it is well worth it. Just be sure you use the right product!

  12. Kylie

    I always wait a few months before I write a review because that is how long it takes to see any results from skin care. I found Shiseido Wrinkle Resist 24 to feel extremely nice when I was using it but I didn’t see a difference in my skin. I much prefer the texture of Bio Performance.

  13. Surekha

    I am 28years old. I started using the White Lucent range since the age of 21. My mum got it for me saying it’s time i paid attention to a good skin care range. i have been a Shiseido phonetic ever since. I use their entire White Lucent range, This range is like a miracle facial uplift range! i recommend it to all young career women.

  14. Saskia

    I have been usingShiseido Wrinkle Resist 24 at night for two years and it has reduced wrinkles and evened out my skin. The product is pricey but you only need to a pea sized portion and the jar should last you for six months.

  15. Veronica

    Love shiseido. I have tried many other brands. But I always come back to the bio performance although it is very $$$$. I recommend this to all my friends and family. They all love it

  16. Melissa

    Shiseido Benefiance Wrinkle Resist 24 is made in America and just because it is a japanese brand it does not mean it is not suited for our skin types. Our skin is almost identical to asian skin, there is no major different. You sound very stubborn to make such a arrogant comment. Some people might take offense to your review so be careful with what you say online.

  17. Erin

    I wonder if your own skin type has something to do with how well this Shiseido works but ether way I am writing a glowing review on Shiseido because they make products that feel really good and I am sure are very good for my skin.
